Kristoffer Peterson signs Liverpool extension

Liverpool winger Kristoffer Peterson signs a one-year contract extension with the team.

Liverpool have announced that Kristoffer Peterson has signed a one-year contract extension with the club.

The 19-year-old, who has recently returned from a loan spell with Tranmere Rovers, is expected to head out on loan again before the end of the transfer window.

The Swedish winger told "It feels terrific. It is actually kind of a shock. A few months ago I didn't believe this would happen.

"Brendan [Rodgers] wanted me to sign a contract as soon as possible. It was me and two others who got new contracts. This is the biggest motivation boost in my career. This is the biggest I have ever experienced.

"Of course, I am aiming for the first team. Liverpool would not have offered me a contract in case they did not have confidence in me. The first step is to go on-loan as soon as possible, I want to play first team football. Then if Liverpool have other plans for me, it is obvious that I will stay."

Peterson, who joined the club as a 16-year-old, is yet to make his first-team debut for the Anfield side.
